The Helena Music Teachers Association recently held a pancake breakfast for the purpose of raising funds for music student scholarships for summer camps. St. John’s Lutheran Church was filled with the sound of live music being played during a scrumptious, yummy-in-your-tummy pancake breakfast and toe-tingling syrup toppings.

Many local students attend a variety of summer music camps locally and throughout Montana. These scholarships can help send a student that may not have had the means to go. These music camp experiences can have a significant impact on a student’s life.

Our sincere and grateful thanks to the Helena community for their support of this effort. With your help we raised over $2,000 for our students. We would like to take this time to thank the following businesses for their support: Heritage Food Store, Van’s Thriftway, Costco, Safeway, Albertson’s, Wheat Montana, Perkins, Helena Symphony, Cherry Creek Radio, Clark’s Music, Murdoch’s, Power Townsend, Piccolo’s Music, Music Makers’ Conservatory and Black Sandy Segmented Bowls by R. Dahlke! The support was generous and we are truly thankful.

“Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.” – Confucius 

May we all play on!

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters. If you receive an error after submitting a comment, please contact us.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps:

    1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

    2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

    3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

    4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

    5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

    6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

    7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

    8. Your comment is in really poor taste.

    9. Don't write a novel. If your comment is longer than the article you're commenting on, you might want to cut it down a bit. Lengthy comments will likely be removed.
